It’s About Better Control

Most people don’t think too much about their thermostats, but the truth is that your home’s thermostat is the control center for your entire HVAC system. Having a thermostat that matches your system and that offers you a solid level of control over your heating and cooling; it is also a key ingredient to your indoor comfort and ability to be energy efficient. Today’s thermostats have come a long way from the old standards of dial and slide thermostats, and you’ll be able to see some of the differences in energy efficiency in your monthly energy bills.

Types of Thermostats

There are four main types of thermostats Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning offers that can help homeowners attain better control over their heating:

  • Digital Thermostat
  • Programmable Thermostat
  • Wireless Thermostat
  • Smart Thermostat

One advantage all of these thermostats offer is a digital face. Having a digital face means you can set your thermostat to an exact temperature. This precision allows you to save money simply by being on target; with thermostats that only offer degrees in a range, you could actually be off by 2–3 degrees in your setting which can cost you money in extra energy or discomfort because of chillier inside temperatures.

A programmable thermostat gives you both precision and the ability to program your heating and cooling for up to 7 days. You can typically set up to 4 daily changes per day which allows you to power down heating and cooling when no one is home and power it up before everyone’s arrival. Most importantly, a programmable thermostat allows you to save money by reducing the amount of energy you use, and does so in an extremely convenient way.

Wireless thermostats refer to a set of wireless thermostats you can place around your home where you want, as long as they are within 500 feet of the main thermostat, which acts as a receiver and the main communicator with your HVAC system. There are usually 3–4 wireless thermostats included with the main receiver and many wireless thermostats are programmable. Having a wireless thermostat allows you to turn your system up or down within arm’s reach simply by using one of the wireless thermostats.

A smart thermostat is the crème de la crème of today’s thermostats. Not only can you precisely set and program with a smart thermostat, you can monitor, track and develop reports about your home’s energy use. And best of all, you can do so from virtually anywhere with a smart device.
